Description Mārtiņš Mačs 2019-04-16 03:57:21 UTC
GTick has two .desktop entries in /usr/share/applications:
* one created by `make install`,
* second created by `make_desktop_entry` in ebuild.

This is due to recent update from 0.5.0 to 0.5.4.
0.5.0 did not include .desktop entry, so it was created by ebuild.
However 0.5.4 now includes its own .desktop file, but ebuild still creates one.

I guess `make_desktop_entry` should be removed.
